I'm interested to hear your experiences with meditation and guided imagery or any other integrative technique.
I have read Carl Simonton's book, Getting Well Again and it has become my foundation in getting and staying well. I believe in his pioneering work - at least in the Western world. I have met a few people who have been healed using guided imagery techniques like he describes in the book. I used these during my treatment and I think they helped me endure the rigors of chemo.
I also can't discount the value of participating in some of my favorite activities like singing.
Has anyone else used these techniques? Based on my experience, people are really not interested in this type of thing. I have given people copies of THE BOOK and CDs that I used and found that they lay dormant - I don't know if they are lazy, disinterested, or don't believe, or maybe just being polite when I share the info in the first place. So I have "backed off" my evangelical cause and give to those that are truly interested in doing some work in this area.
Please share your experiences in this area.
Peace and joy to all, Mary Ann
